The U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team Is Already on a Cereal Box

But it isn't Wheaties


After claiming the all-around gold medal at the Rio Olympics, the United States women's gymnastics team is taking part in an American tradition: The five gymnasts will see their faces on a cereal box. Kellogg's is celebrating Team USA with its Special K Red Berries brand.

"We couldn't be prouder of Simone [Biles] and the women's team after all of their incredible achievements here in Rio representing Team USA," Noel Geoffroy, a senior vice president at Kellogg's, said in a press release. "By highlighting what gets her started each day — the support of her teammates — Simone has shown us the daily motivations that drive her to be the best gymnast in the world and helped her reach her full potential at her first Games."

In addition to leading the Americans to the top of the team competition, Biles won the gold medal for individual all-around. Her teammate Aly Raisman claimed the silver medal. It's a nice honor, but Biles would probably rather see her mug on a pizza box.

Gymnastics and cereal fans can snag a limited-edition box free of charge by joining Kellogg's Family Rewards online.
